H. Sanford, Editor, No. 1. Ann Arbor, Mïch : published by Sanford & Brothers, 1847. There, reader, you have the title of a pamphlet of 48 pages which has been laid upon our table, with a request to notice. We think it is the longest title of any work we ever saw for a work of the size. We have read tho work with somo attention, and as it is rather an extraordinary production, a notice at some length may be appropriate. The pamphlet contain? fourteèn leo tures, dohvered by Mr. Alverson in the magnetio stnte. Thesuhjects are already indicated by the title. Tho style is bad - dull, formal and inöipid, and not much in keeping with the grandeur and mnjestv of the subjecls discussed. But we find some pacts related, not generally known by the human family, of which we will give a few specimens. Tho sun, we are told, "was more millions of yoars in forming than can be enumerated." (' Millions of millions of yearsrolled round in forraing tho globe." " A million of years rolled round before there was any thing in the shapeoC animal life." F rom the time God created man till he breathed into him the breath of iutelleclual life, was a million oi vears. Before that he lived in anial state. There were others besides idam and Eve who transgressed like liem whom Moses does not mention, nd who were located n different parts f the earth. One of these settlemenis as in tlie land of Nod, where Cain mared his wife. There were existing provious lo the )eluge one hundred million of bcasts and luman boing. The Deluge wns brought on by the udden stoppage of ihe earth in its moion round the Sun, which swashed the vater all over the land. Sodom was destroyed at about 12 o':lock. When Belshazzarsaw the wriling on he wall, and his knees smote together, ie had a ñt of the Delirium Tremens. The Israelitas passed the Red Sea, ,vhen the tide was receding' Phnraoh béng delayod with hisohariots by thestones in the bjttom, was drowned by the re:urning tide. The Israelites crossed over the Jordán on the rocks in the bed of the river in a dry time, the body of the stréam running ihrough fissures in the rocks. The translutors made mistakes of figu'es and dates, in rondering the Bible, not undersianding the charaeters to desígnate days, months,.and yeois, usod by the Jews. The walls of Jericho were battered down by battering rams nfter a siege of seven years, instead of ral!ing Hown by a miracle, as stated in our translation, after being circumambulatêd seven days. Joshua's command to the sun and moon to stand still, had no reference to our sun and moon, and had no effect on them. The Israeliles wanoered in the wilderness 400 years, instead of 40 years, as stated by Mosps. Balaani thought he truly heard the oss speak, but it was only a ventriloquist near by.The vv iteh of i.ndor was a ventriloquist, and having raised the body of Samuel from the sepulchre, she spoke through his mouth. The tribes of the Israel tes crossed over Bherings Straits into America, B. C. 200 years, and had various fightswith the natives, particularly near BuiTalo, on the Muskingum, and near Chicago. - The original inhabitants were finally run out : the Israeliles engnged in civil wnrs, lost the knowlsdge of ihe Bible, and of fire arms, which they had brought with them, and were in the condition described by Columbus and his fellow voyagers. They hnd one truenrophet, who died about 100 years afier Ghrist. These are curious statements, and the evidence of their truth is that Mr. Laban Alverson, in the Mognetic state, kneto or saw them to be just so : for the Clairvoyants sec some things and know others. Those who think this testimony suíficient can bel ie ve them all. For our part, we cánnol say but every one of his statements is correct, as he treats of matlers entirely bcyond our sphere of knowledge. We cannot contradict him upön matters of which we know, and can know nothing. We shall leave him undispmed possession of the field. The Appendix gives particulars of several Clnirvoyant wxamihatioria bv which Mr. Alverson, in the magnetic state, examinedsick persons and succcssfully prescribed for them. Some persons exarnined were distant from the Clairvoyant from 5 of a miJc to 500 miles ! Distance is nothing to a Clairvoyant. Hecan seO nenrly if not quite, all things ; and canseeright into persons, and view the inierrial derangements af the human M-stcin. This certainly," is a great improvement in rneuical scíence. The Appendix also contains' a new Phrenolojical head, with 77 organs markcd upon it- heing about twice nsniany as Fowkr and Combe have laid down.-l Wo have been somewhat of a believer iu Phrenology ; hut if it progresses at Jts ra:e we shall not be able to keep up with its changes.but must relinquish the knowK edge of the science to the regular practitioners. Some of our subscribers have repeatcdlyinquired of us whetherwe believeany thing in Magnetism, and if so, how much? We have no objections tosíate our opinions : but this ariicle is so long we must defer an answer lili a fuiure occasion.
